Histories of the Unexpected: Live
09/11/18 19:30 - 09/11/18 21:30

Friday 9 November

What links zebras to the Second World War? Why is the history of the orange all about Elizabethan spies? How is the history of windows connected to the battle of Trafalgar? 

A journey of historical discovery that tackles some of the greatest of historical themes - from the Tudors to the Second World War but via entirely unexpected subjects. 

Histories of the Unexpected is the brainchild of two of the UK’s best-known historians, Dr Sam Willis and Professor James Daybell. 


This exciting new show brings their hugely successful podcast to life before you, demonstrating that everything has a history, even the most unexpected of subjects, and how those subjects link together in unexpected ways.

You will never think about the past - or the present - in the same way ever again. Guaranteed
